[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #203 myanmar phoneme added
By rhdunn:

I have merged the 'make clean' patch. The Myanmar/Burmese changes has issues, so I am not merging that:

  1. the file in espeak-ng is ph_burmese, not ph_myanmar (both are valid names for the language);
  2. when using ph_myanmar as ph_burmese, I get: ph_burmese(1133): Can't read file: FinalMy/a43.

Travis,

do I assume correctly, you are you talking about French?
For me espeak-ng says:

espeak-ng -x -vfr "Jan."
 Z'A~

If it is not correct, what should be correct pronunciation?

Thanks,
Valdis

How does one change pronounciation on espeak? There are many times 
espeak pronounces the j as if it were a swedish i or perhaps an
english 
y, and this is completely the wrong behavior in english. How does
one 
fix this?  It's really beginning to irritate me to no end.
Someone named jan should not be sounding like a sweet potato.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #186 Improve the Arabic support
By csisc:

In the description of Sebawayh, [d͡ʒ] is the pronunciation of ج. However, the pronunciation of Arabic had changed. When the linguists have decided to create the Modern Standard Arabic that will replace the Classical Arabic by the 19th Century, they have studied the phonology of the Arabic dialects and replaced Classical pronunciation by the mostly used dialectal arabic one. For example, ج became pronounced as [ʒ]. You can verify this by seeing the main references about this issue that are used by specialists in Computational Linguistics. For example, Al-Aswat al-lughawiyah of Ibrahim Anis and Al-Aswat al-lughawiyah of Muhammad Alkhouli...

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #186 Improve the Arabic support
By linuxscout:

Of course, ج is pronounced as [ʒ]. You can listen to it in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FileVoiced_palato-alveolar_sibilant.ogg.

You can view that [dzˤ] is the standard pronunciation, cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_phonology or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiced_palato-alveolar_affricate but the [ʒ], is used in dialect, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_phonology#endnote_6.

you can read

^ The phoneme represented by the Arabic letter ǧīm (ج) has many standard pronunciations: [d͡ʒ] in most of the Arabian Peninsula and as the predominant pronunciation of Literary Arabic, [ɡ] in most of Egypt and some regions in Yemen and Oman. This is also a characteristic of colloquial Egyptian and southern Yemeni dialects.[16] In Morocco and western Algeria, it is pronounced as [ɡ] in some words, especially colloquially. In most north Africa and most of the Levant, the standard is pronounced [ʒ], and in certain regions of the Persian Gulf with [j]. In some Sudanese and Yemeni dialects, it may be either [ɡʲ] or [ɟ] as it used to be in Classical Arabic. Foreign words containing /ɡ/ may be transcribed with ج‎, غ‎, ك‎, ق‎, گ‎, ݣ‎ or ڨ‎, mainly depending on the regional spoken variety of Arabic or the commonly diacriticized Arabic letter . Also, /d͡ʒ~ʒ/ (چ only in Egypt) can be used in loanwords where it isn't the standard pronunciation for the letter ǧīm (ج).

For other phonemes, I will check it.

I thank you for your answer. What I have seen in the source code is that ج, ذ, and ض do not meet to Modern Standard Arabic phonological features. I did not succeed to try the preview of the configuration in eSpeakedit. If you show me how to do that, I will surely adjust the parameters.

I thank you for dealing with this important issue. The matter is just that the configuration for Modern Standard Arabic was influenced by the Algerian Arabic phonology. I think that we can keep these files as the ones of Algerian Arabic (arq) and we can adjust these files in order to make the ones of Modern Standard Arabic (ar).

#202 Improvements for French and Dutch languages.


[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by ValdisVitolins:
#199 Language analysis improvements

Language analysis and spelling decisions could be improved by introducing following new features: - [ ] extend verb follows/noun follows marks to more/arbitrary flags, which then can be used to make different pronunciation rules for homonyms - [ ] J statement as precondition, to allow choosing pronunciation from preceding word. This could help solving names of numbers as different words #83 - [ ] possibility to go back to start of the rules and redo analysis again (e.g. issue #121 not only after removing pre/suf-fixes. Could be performance drain, if used improperly.) - [ ] replace rule extended to replace not only characters, but group of characters, also probably replace using matching rules - [ ] _list extended to mark arbitrary defined word types by comparing only root part of the word (i.e. partial match without pre/suffixes) - [ ] output (prosody data) extended to mark syllables with more/arbitrary defined ways for different pronuciations (e.g. high/low pitch for Chinese etc.) - [ ] Fix issue #196 Word end mark _ doesn't work properly with ~ character group. - [ ] Common rule for stress decision before or after specific spelling decision of word is made. E.g. to put stress for penultimate syllable in Italian #80 as common rule.
